    I don't post frequently but would like to share a recent purchase that I am very excited about and would like to share with the community!
    A very rare Hadrain denarius depicting Patientia! As far as I know it is the only Roman coin showing Patientia.
    3.45g, 17mm

    Thanks for watching and feel free to add your rare Hadrians denarii!

    I had no idea the type even existed. Great coin! I suppose Hadrian would have had a great deal of patientia to travel the empire at the speed of galleys and horses.

    haha I don’t think he had because it was very soon replaced by INDULGENTIA :)

    Hadrian is on my get next list.
    Bucket list: to visit Hadrian's wall on the UK
    Btw, in those days it was probably easier and faster to travel 500 miles by sea than 100 by land.
    No Autobahn ;)
